Nicole Riegert & Herbert George Wells
The Island of Dr. Moreau
Translated from English by Felix Paul Greve
Revised by Christine Mrowietz
Shipwrecked, saved and stranded on a remote island in the middle of nowhere, the young Englishman Edward Prendick encounters the mysterious Dr. Moreau. Initially beholden to his rescuer, he discovers by and by that something strange is going on on the island.
Edward’s mistrust of the people living there grows deeper and deeper. But when gruesome creatures appear, half man, half animal, flight seems inevitable.
The thriller by H. G. Wells was first published in 1896. Even today, reading it triggers eerie discomfort. In this edition, this discomfort is further enhanced by Nicole Riegert’s inscrutably beautiful xylographs. It will make your flesh creep while you hold your breath!
After “Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams” and “The Vampire’s Bride”, “The Island of Dr. Moreau” is kunstanstifter’s third book illustrated by Nicole Riegert.
